The ecological transition (energy or agro-ecological transition, development issues, etc.) is a subject of public policies. They are complex, sometimes underpinned by blockages or misunderstandings. At IDDRI, we propose possible solutions based on science. We put them on the democratic agenda because they are aimed at political and economic decision-makers, as well as at civil society as a whole. In these podcasts, IDDRI research fellows present their thoughts to shed light on the debate.
Nitrogen and proteins are the subject of our new episode.
Proteins are necessary for our diet. But in Europe, we eat too much, and in particular too much animal protein. Yet, this macro-nutrient is part of a cycle that has a strong impact on natural environments, because nitrogen is needed to produce proteins. How does this cycle work, and how does eating animal products impact the environment? Pierre-Marie Aubert answers questions from Sophie Larmoyer.
